Nicholas Cage - Lord of War




Lord of War caught me by surprise. I have no idea why (or when) I downloaded it but as soon as I saw it was Nicholas Cage I imagined it wouldn't last two minutes.


It is however a good movie, even if as usual, Nicholas Cage is playing Nicholas Cage. Here he is suitably skilled to play a paedophile arms dealer whereas his attempts elsewhere to play an heroic dirty cop are just too tedious.

Jared Leto & Ethan Hawke are in this movie too. Jared is not a very believable character but that's more down to the writing than anything. Ethan Hawke does a better job given his role is more stereotypical good cop. 

A cheesy number given most cops are either stupid, or corrupt. A small handful being neither.
